Hi Folks-- I've been taking Acyclovir .200 twice daily for 25+ years. Docs assured me there are no side effects. Two years ago, for no discernible reason, my ALK level rose to 230+. Been watching it every 6 months and it's gone down to 220, but is still elevated. All the usual tests, show nothing. Doc decided maybe my bile ducts are inflamed since my gall bladder was removed 10 years ago and that now that I'm aging, my bile ducts are weakening. I'm wondering if it's the Acyclovir affecting me now that I'm older. I've just started taking only one capsule a day and hope that I won't have outbreaks. Am wondering if I need to diminish my dose on a slower basis instead of every day. Has anyone experienced anything similar? Thanks!
